Equine Assisted Learning and Therapeutic Horsemanship provide the individual with the opportunity to learn about the horse and horse-care, as well as groundwork and handling techniques.
Taking an individual out of their everyday learning routine can encourage new associations to be formed and the horse can provide a novel, creative environment in which to develop the mind.
Through the horse, a person can learn to develop a love for learning.
We don't believe in limiting people and each session is tailored to the individual. Therefore every lesson will be different and each person will learn as much as he or she is willing or able.
We use his willingness and natural behaviours to our advantage and learn how to 'show' the horse to carry out certain tasks and 'persuade' him to do certain activities.
We learn how to be safe around horses when handling teaching various groundwork exercises.
We explore horses themselves and learn about how they live in their natural environment and how they interact with other horses as well as ourselves.
We learn how to look after them best, so that both you and the horse can bring out the best in each other.
He teaches us how to build successful relationships and partnerships.
The art of patience and persistence as well as being able to control our emotions.
One of the most important lessons the horse has for us is how to be successful, or good at learning and acquiring new skills.
We learn how to focus by setting goals and the importance of having a plan before carrying out actions as well as many more life skills.
Groundwork exercises include moving the fore and hind quarters of the horse away from us, backing up, leading safely, as well as helping the horse to accept things like flags, Swiss balls and tarpaulin. We also explore obstacles with the horse on line, for instance jumping over logs, different surfaces, circling at walk, trot and canter or going into the round pen to learn liberty work.
At the end of each session we create a mind map of what was learnt about the horse and from the horse .
Also available are gift vouchers if you would like to get a session as a present just send an email requesting a gift voucher.
Transformation, healing and personal growth is a journey...
